THE LOPBURI KAYAKING PROJECT

IN KING NARAI’S TRAIL

SINGBURI – AYUTTHAYA

By Tricky Vandenberg

the lopburi kayaking project1
THE LOPBURI KAYAKING PROJECT

King Narai (r. 1656-1688) used the Lopburi River for his boat travels between the Grand Palace in Ayutthaya and the palace in Lopburi. The latter was built during the years 1665 - 1677 and once served as the King's residence and administrative center during his regular annual stay.

The King boarded at the Wasukri landing in front of the Grand Palace in Ayutthaya, turned into Khlong Sra Bua, to join the Lopburi in the north. He disembarked at the old royal harbor at the back of the Lopburi palace and entered the Lady's Court through the western gate "YatraKasattri" after climbing a flight of stairs, called "the fifty-one steps".

We will follow in King Narai's steps...
